about big bird and cutting the government's apron springs doesn't cut it what does? >>guest: this is fought a serious debate when president obama said we cannot cut one small program. to we cannot cut this program what can we cut? we have $1.1 trillion deficit and that was an improvement. >>neil: the argument is, it is chump change. but you add them up, it adds up. >>guest: i do watch pbs a lot, sometimes i listen to npr but people would listen to it and watch it and like the programming, they should pay if it. talk about children's programming. it used to be "sesame" was the only game in town, the most successful program in the history of tv. now this are hundreds of programs like "sesame street" on pay for profit television. my feeling is, if people like warren buffett and people like ted turner feel this is such an important programming, why shouldn't they pay for it? >>neil: the issue here, you know, is what we spending and where we cut back on spending. the argument the liberals give you, maybe we just charge more for what we are spending money on. that gets back to mor

to look at that. i started my career in the state government working in the employment security commission and i can tell you we have a job classification a dictionary of occupational titles, we can do this by work classification if we want to do work. >>neil: in other words just to be clear, just to be clear, congressman, you are saying that you cannot always do it by tax increases alone because it was even the democratic caucus that concluded that if you were to tax the rich at 100 percent just take all their money that would not keep medicare going beyond another five years so obviously >>guest: absolutely. there is a comprehensive way to do this and be fair and balanced. i like to use that term when i talk to you on fox. >>neil: i like that. >>neil: congressman, always a pleasure. thank you very much. we will explore this in greater detail on fox business network with senator mcconnell, and sarah palin, and former intel c.e.o. craig barrett, all coming up on fox business network. now back to fox news, the fallout from the conservatives that has not transpired in kentucky. why is that?

.p. morgan setting aside $200 million plus dollars preparing for the possibility this government could blow up on december 31. what do you think happen? what i hear from congressional folk on either side of the aisle, they get a six month suspension, cooler heads prevail for the new year, whether it is president romney or re-elected president obama. that is when they will sort this out. i think that is whistleing past the graveyard. >>guest: i totally grow. if you read bob woodward's book, you will see what went on to create some of this, back in 2011 we passed the budget control bill, you will see there was no honest political move that both sides could take. cantor wanted obamacare taken out. they wanted a de-coupling of the bush tax cuts. it was foolish. they kicked the can down the road and this time it cannot be kicked. you hear that the bush tax cuts favor the wealthy, right? let me dispell that. if the tax cuts for the wealthy are done away with tomorrow, it will raise between $678 billion and $800 billion over 10 years. guess what in if you let them expire, how about $3.7 trillion.

the catholics, along with evangelical churches are actually suing the federal government. that was ridiculous attacking the integrity of the catholic church to say, no, they are just making this stuff up. they are not. the catholic church has nothing to gain by sewering the federaly suing the federal government. he had two catholic guys doing the debate, maybe they should have had a moderator be a nun and she would whack him when they were interrupting. >>neil: paul ryan may not have laid into the vice president as hard as some republicans would have liked but on fox business network sarah palin certainly did last night. >> we would rather have 50 million super seniors determine how their medicare is delivered them than the bureaucrats in. >> i heard that death panel argument from sarah palin. >> how many vice presidential debates have there been in four years? this is only number two. what paul ryan was talking about, the panel of 15 bureaucrats who will make life-and-death decisions on coverage rather than doctors and patients having a relationship to make our own decisions about the covera

, use our influence, including clear conditions on our aid to urge the new government to represent all egyptians, to build democratic institutions and to maintain the peace treaty with israel. >> the national security analysts k.t. mcfarland. i have been waiting over 20 years for this speech. he was channeling ronald reagan. he was making a speech that talked about not just with pretty words but with policies, where he understands america can use the economic power to influence events and help shape world events, use our economic power in the sense of phone aid, if we get it, we want something back. but he talked about american military, he talked about, for example, putting aircraft carrier groups and men in the gulf, using economic warfare against iran using sanctions, tightening the sanctions and he realizes like reagan, that the notion of peace through strength is not just a throw away line but have a strong military so you never have to use it because no one picks a fight with you. >>eric: let me give you another soundbite talking about cutting off aid to egypt if we need to. that
